    They allude to the Supra, but no actual "Supra" name was stated. We are getting closer!

    Toyota 2000GT. Mark my words. 2 seater. It's no Supra.

    Same here. Maybe the Supra will be more of a Halo car later on then?

    I agree it technically strays away from the path but I'm not sure how the 2000GT is more iconic than the Supra.

    I always assumed the 2000GT sat higher than supra in hierachy, and that the LFA was a true 2000GT successor.

    both were designed to compete with porsche/supercars
    both were called "outlandishly expensive" and "no-one would pay this for a toyota/lexus"

    supra was envisaged to take on the local sports cars, like GT-R/NSX/RX7 etc...

    “these are the latest details about the car nobody has officially seen yet but whose mule is old enough to have its own mid-cycle refresh”.

    The above is a part of an article from the Jalopnik website, the comment about the mule being old enough to have its own mid-cycle refresh made me laugh....

    .....the wait is coming to an end. I still think they’ll screw this up if it’s really the MKIV’s successor but at least we’ll have more info in March as opposed to waiting until the fall. I really want to love the MKV... whatever it is.

    Don’t agree with you. Most iconic, which would be the supra. Even non car guys know what a supra is, can’t really say that for the 2000gt
